Re: (Ooma) Voice Communications Exchange (VCXC)

Bandwidth.com and Verizon are actually leading this effort. We talked about this a year ago...

I could be mistaken, but it seems like the Verizon-Bandwidth.com deal was over PSTN calls.

The point of these initiatives is to figure out a new billing model for phone calls. As we transition from a circuit switched telephone network riding on its own wires, to an 'over the top' IP service, traditional billing models and regulations may not make sense anymore.

The Bandwidth.com/Verizon deal sets a new model.

Its very similar to what VCVX wants to do. Break away from the current regulations and billing cycles.
